Thanks for your feedback. I was looking at .gitattributes but thrown
off, because in debian/buster the file does not contain *.dsw. It was
changed in 9.11.6, which is in debian/master.

*.sln.in eol=crlf
*.vcxproj.in eol=crlf
*.vcxproj.filters.in eol=crlf


I still don't get why it's only happening now, and only with export=WC,
as I'm not in that branch. Is it possible that the tarball generation
somehow looks at the .gitattributes from HEAD (debian/master) instead of
the current debian branch or upstream tag? The file dxdriver.dsw has not
been changed since 9.9.0a1 was imported 7 years ago.
